You should add what you have tried so far, and what you don't understand about this problem. If you do, many more people will want to help you. –  Jason Polak Mar 21 '11 at 15:57
You have to describe your prism more exactly. What do you mean by "base" (I assume it is a length), and do you assume that the base polygon (?) is regular? –  Christian Blatter Mar 21 '11 at 18:53
In general, the lateral area of a right prism is equal to the perimeter of the base multiplied with the height of the prism. In your case $(5\times 10)\times 25$.
